More on Republic Windows plans to move to Iowa...

Check out this blog, it has a lot more info on the owners of Republic Windows & Doors plans to move operations to Iowa...

The new company is apparently called Echo Windows and bought a facility in Iowa that was called TRACO. It is the labor practices at TRACO that are the evidence that workers will be paid $9 an hour (almost half what workers at Republic make) and have little in the way of benefits. I am expecting a more complete story on this sometime soon on the ChiTown News website...
